If you’re a punk guy who’s after neat and minimalistic haircuts, try out this flat top undercut with a tapered fade. The hawk goes along the top of the head, gradually changing the length from the longest in the front and the shortest in the back. Ideally, the faux hawk should blend into the hair at the nape. For added contrast, complete the look with a shaved-in line going round to the back.

When you combine a spiky haircut with a Mohawk, you get a true killer look. You need to find a really skillful barber though, as cutting and styling this punk hair style requires a very high precision. On the sides, you can go for a high skin fade and shaved-in design, such as two parallel curved lines.

Notably, to rock punk haircuts for guys, there’s no need to go with a Mohawk. You can basically get any hairstyle that has the features of this subculture. For instance, you can have a high undercut top, styled in the way you would normally have your hawk styled, pushed up and a little forward. For the most striking contrast, shave all the hair on the sides and back off. It’s better to pair such bold mens hair cuts with a little facial hair.
